How Does PRP Work?

Did you know that the secret to beautiful skin and luscious hair can be found within your blood?

It may sound spooky, but hear us out – your blood’s platelets hold a special kind of plasma that’s foundational to a number of skin processes. From cellular turnover to elastin and collagen-building, your platelets can naturally transform your appearance.

Plus, when added to a special growth-activating serum, your platelets can even tighten and tone your skin , leaving you looking younger.

Let’s take a closer look at how PRP works, whether it’s for skin rejuvenation or for hair loss.

How PRP Works

PRP – which stands for platelet-rich plasma – is derived from your blood cells. These platelets play a foundational role in our body’s healing processes, which is why they’re such an excellent choice for skin rejuvenation and the treatment of hair loss.

We extract your platelets from a few teaspoons of your blood. To do this we use a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the blood. From there, we add the platelets to a special growth-activating serum that can be injected directly into your desired treatment area.

PRP for Hair Loss

PRP is a popular choice for hair loss or thinning hair. The PRP formula is injected directly into the scalp at the site of thinning or absent hair. The PRP solution works to reinvigorate hair follicles at their root, resulting in a resurgence of hair growth. 

PRP for hair loss is an excellent solution for candidates with thinning hair or those who have just started noticing balding.

PRP for Skin Rejuvenation

PRP can also be used to create a luminous, younger-looking complexion. For this treatment, PRP is added to a microneedling device, which helps push the formula into the subdermal tissue where it can have optimal impact. 

PRP for skin rejuvenation is a great choice for people who want to treat common complexion issues like aging, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, and more.

“Dr. Pilest is a true artist. I have been going to him for years and trust him to completely. I have had many procedures and have always had a great experience. Most of my treatments have been with Dr. Piles, but recently I had fraxel and PRP with Aileen and the results are amazing. I can’t recomend Total Dermatology enough.” *
